I got the blues! »

5.0 Stars

At Kingston Mines, you find yourself on the bayou, drinking a cool beer, listening to some quality tunes, and singing along to somebody's rendition of "Sweet Home Chicago." What could be better? Any trip to Chicago has to involve a trip to a blues club, so why not head to its oldest and most famous one? HUGE names have passed through this place, and for good reason. The atmosphere is awesome, the crowd is varied, dancing is encouraged, and the party goes on 'til 4am! Sounds like a little slice of heaven to me...

Probably the most unforgettable musical night ever, listening to nonstop music from several different bands. Chicago blues rocks! Legendary guitar players every night in this unprepossessing little place that is all about the music.

The Very Best Chicago Blues »

5.0 Stars

Herein lies the sound of Chicago. Thumping bass, electric riffs, and occasional sax solo – they’re all there, as are the spirited band members, call-and-responsing all night long. It’s Chicago Blues at its finest, just as Muddy Waters and Bo Didley originally intended. Inside, it’s packed, the crowd diverse, some out of their seats stomping and swaying to the music. With two rooms and two stages, the band alternates between both, so you have plenty of time to chat before the music lures you to the dance floor for good. The change-ups between musical acts keep the energy high and it’s likely the music will outlast your stay. Kingston Mines isn’t especially famous for mixed drinks or draughts on tap, nor is it especially cheap. If you go, bring a student ID for a discounted cover and be sure to ask your server for drink specials. Don’t pass up a night at one of Chicago’s most established and enjoyable live music venues.
